Apps4Rent has entered the New Year with the launch of a host of new products such as Hosted Exchange 2013, SharePoint Server 2013, Hyper-V Server 2012, among others. This calls for a review of Microsoft Exchange 2013, which is my personal favorite. Like its predecessors, Exchange 2013 is a combination of both communication and collaboration features. It comprises all features that make communication and collaboration easier in this mobile era. Integration is possible with Microsoft Lync 2013 and SharePoint 2013, Smart Search for enhanced search results, touch user interface, improved search and indexing for search across Exchange 2013, SharePoint, Lync 2013, and Windows file servers are some of the key highlights of Exchange 2013.
